GILE NA GREINE is held in some regard by connections so it was no surprise to see her entered in the Moyglare Stud Stakes at the Curragh after landing her maiden there earlier. She didn't do herself justice in that Group 1 event and this should be wthin her capabilities. New Magic produced a shock to make a winning debut here in November and can only improve while Queen Of Troy scored over the minimum trip here last season and will have benefited from her return behind Lady Springbank in a Group 3 at Leopardstown. Carefree Smile was a little disappointing in her first season culminating in a moderate effort here in November.
